The So-Called "Philly Horse"

People in Philadelphia are excited because for the third straight year, there is a horse with Philly ties making a run at the Triple Crown. Barbaro won the Kentucky Derby last weekend, following in the footsteps of Afleet Alex last year and Smarty Jones the year before.

Except, is Barbaro really a "Philly horse"? Not really, according to an item in the Philadelphia Inquirer. While the horse's owners and trainer live in Chester County, Barbaro himself was born in Kentucky and spent most of his life in Florida. The horse has never set foot- er, hoof- in Philadelphia. Then again, neither did 2005 Preakness and Belmont winner Afleet Alex, who was also controlled by Philly-based owners, wasn't really from Philly either, although '04 Derby and Preakness winner Smarty Jones was legitimately from Philly.

That's right- Philly is so desperate for a title that the fans are even willing to grab hold of a competitor- a horse- who isn't even really from Philly.
